I got married recently a girl. Before marriage I used to have girl frend. After marriage my girl frend is showing interest on me. At present my wife is at her home. So my ex girl frend is coming to meet me and have sex. Is this correct? If not, how to avoid it?

Dear user. I can understand. The present scenario is not correct for any Indian household. You are actually cheating your wife who has trust on you. By having sex with another woman you are breaching her trust. You should tell your past girl friend to keep herself away from you and your family. Take care.

Take tab, cognium, 2 tabs, twice a day, after meals with warm milk. Do pranayama like anuloma viloma, kapaal bhati etc. Continue the routine for 2 months. Make a particular routine of your daily chores. Sleep adequately like 7 to 8 hrs at night. Avoid cold food like cold water, shakes, cold drinks etc. Good luck.

I am unable to concentrate on anything like if I start reading a book I can for more then 10 minutes. moreover many thoughts of my person life arises up which are irrelevant too. And this has just started from 4-5 months.

General Physician,
CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

If it is interfering with your work or personal life, or affecting your sleep or appetite, consult a Psychiatrist immediately. Anger issues are usually an indication of an underlying problem which needs to be addressed further.

Stress - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Stress - Homeopathic Remedies For It!

Stress affects every aspect of our lives. It does not allow you to think or focus on anything else, tempts you to binge eat and takes control of your lifestyle. Stress can also cause severe health problems that can result in heart disease. Thus it is very necessary to learn how to control and manage stress. Managing your stress effectively can help you cope with it better and let your remain in control of your life.

Homeopathy is based on the belief that the mind and body are connected. Thus by treating one, the other can benefit as well. Thus when prescribing a form of treatment for any health condition, attention is always paid to the mental state of the patient. Homeopathy can be very effective in treating and controlling stress and stress related problems. When treating stress with homeopathy, it is essential to first understand the cause of stress.

Some common homeopathic remedies for stress are:

  1. Arsenic album: This is usually prescribed to people who are generally anxious and nervous. People affected by the stress of being late for an event or meeting can also be given this remedy to ease the stress. Patients who benefit from this form of treatment are also often hypochondriacs who constantly feel that every minor symptom is a sign of a major illness.
  2. Bryonia: This is very effective remedy for all kinds of stress. It can also be used to treat stress triggered by uncertainty at the workplace and insecurity about not having enough money even though they work very hard.
  3. Calcarea carbonica: This is also a common homeopathic remedy for work place related stress. People who are concerned about being observed or stressed by an upcoming deadline can be benefited by this medication. This type of stress can commonly be seen at the time of appraisals.
  4. Staphysagria: People who are extremely sensitive and feel that the world is unjust and unfair to them cab be benefited by Staphysagria. This is often faced by children bullied in school and people in corporate work environments. Staphysagria boosts confidence levels and thus makes the person feel less vulnerable.
  5. Ignatia: Emotional stress is very well treated by Ignatia. This homeopathic remedy addresses feelings of disappointment and guilt and stress that follows an emotional loss such as the loss of a loved one or breaking up for a relationship. It also fights the desire to withdraw from family and friends and moodiness.

I fell in love with a girl and she is not serious about me and I am feeling depressed and I am not able to sleep. I went to many doctors but they all are giving me sleeping tablets which I really don't like to have. Please help me.

1. avoid caffeine found in coffee,tea , chocolate,cola,and some pain relievers.[four to six hours before bedtime.] 2. quiet, dark, and cool environment can help promote sound sleep. . [Use heavy curtains, or an eye mask to block light, and also keeping computers, TVs, and other work materials out of the room will help promote mental bonding between your bedroom and sleep] 3. Avoid stressful, stimulating activities like doing work, discussing emotional issues. Physically and psychologically stressful activities can cause the body to secrete the stress hormone cortisol, which is associated with increasing alertness.

Dear lybrate user. You are 17. Most probably you must have experienced a voice change from your earlier years. I see this as a transition stage. Horse voice is common during transition stage. I suggest you continuously sing many movie songs and it will clear your throat and voice problems. Don't worry. Take care.

Hi, most importantly, meet him, sit down clarify whatever doubts you have whatever is making you uncomfortable. If he loves you he should comfort you and provide you the solution. You are planning your marriage with him 2 years is not a long time to know everything about each other. Please its advised to know and gather all information about him from all the sources and if all is positive marry him. Make sure this parents are aware about you. The behavior needs some modification, so sit down and talk about it. Tell him your expectations and ask him about his. Only when you are fully satisfied take this major step called marriage. Consult me for any doubts. All the best.

Suffering from depression -----------kindly give me guidance to come out of this. Thanks.
Hello Lybrate User. Depression is a complicated, multifaceted condition. The general scientific consensus is that it is a biologically-based illness, although there is still some debate over this. For the purposes of this question, I'll assume that you're referring to the illness of major depression, and not just to a transient low mood, or to what most people feel when they say "Oh, I feel depressed. There are a few important things you can do if you want to join the fight against their illness: Offer your support through tangible expressions of friendship and empathy. Don't just say "Oh that sounds so tough" or "I'm so sorry, I'm here for you. But ask them how they're sleeping. What they think about when they feel their worst. Call them often, even when they don't pick up or have short answers. Be tenacious. Don't give up in your efforts to reach out. It's almost impossible to reach out to a depressed person too frequently, if you're already close with them. They likely won't be in the mood to proactively contact you, and may not seem like they appreciate your actions, but remember, they're suffering from an illness. Try to keep them active, even if they refuse activities and outings. As above, just keep at it, keep asking, keep suggesting, don't ever give up. Suggest therapy, suggest medication, talk with them about how they're dealing with both and what issues are coming up.

I am very bad in remembering things. My memory is very bad. Is there any way to improve my memory?

Ph.D - Psychology, M.Phil - Clinical Psychology, MA - Psychology
Psychologist, Chennai
Usually memory will get affected after a traumatic head injury or any other issues in the brain or age related wear and tear only. People may feel that their memory is very bad during their stressful situations or while during the depression. There is no medicine to improve the memory.
